Observations

September 2019 – McMichael has been returned to the London Knights of the OHL with a week remaining in exhibition play. McMichael may have registered just one assist in two games but he played very well; earning praise from Capitals management and leading many to believe he would get a nine game trail if Eller was to be out for the start of the season. It was not meant to be and now McMichael will go back to the OHL in an offensive role for the Knights. Pat Quinn

 

July 2019 – McMichael is not the flashiest or highest skilled forward but he is a forward that gets the job done. His true potential was not able to shine through on a stacked London Knights team but he still posted great production (72 points in 67 games) in a limited role due to the amount of older players o the roster. He can shoot, score and play an excellent two-way game. The centre ice position on the Capitals is locked up for years so they have the ability to be patient with McMichael. Pat Quinn

 

June 2019 – McMichael has been drafted 25th overall by the Capitals.  Jokke Nevalainen

 

June 2019 – McMichael played a sizable role on a good but not great London Knights squad this season. The pivot brings across-the-board skills without really excelling in any one skill. His 36 goals trailed only Arthur Kaliyev’s 51 for first-time draft-eligible skaters in the OHL. His 72 points ranked third. The all-around pivot is not the biggest or fastest player, but he’s effective at finding seams and distributing the puck. He owns a quick and accurate release and can finish at a high rate. He’s not afraid to work into the high-traffic areas. He projects to be a safe floor NHLer with some top-six upside. Cam Robinson
